Sunrisers vs Sunrisers: Hardik Pandya vs Umran Malik Hyderabad defeated Gujarat Titans by eight wickets to win the IPL 2022 season for the second time. Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya and Hyderabad fast bowler Umran Malik engaged in a fierce battle in this match. Umran, a young fast bowler, came in to bowl in the eighth over of Gujarat Titans’ batting. He bowled the first ball at 140 kmph, which hit Hardik’s helmet square in the face. When the ball struck Hardik’s helmet, his wife Natasha, who was in the stadium at the time, was stunned, and her reaction was worth watching.
Hardik said after the game that he wanted to show his strength because the IPL is tough and he couldn’t afford to lose a young fast bowler like Malik. ‘With all due respect, I will not allow any young fast bowler like this to leave,’ he said. I tried to show my strength because the IPL is tough.
As soon as Hardik smacked her in the head with a bouncer, Natasha’s reaction went viral. Hardik, on the other hand, tied it in the same over as Umran. On the second and third balls of Umran’s over, the Gujarat captain hit two consecutive fours.
Umran was the most expensive bowler in the match, taking one wicket for 39 runs in four overs. Hardik played a slow innings of 50 runs in 42 balls, for which he has been heavily chastised. Hardik also hit his 100th six in the IPL in this match, a long six of 86 metres off Aiden Markram’s bowling. In the IPL, he has become the fastest Indian to hit 100 sixes.
